A Combo 3-D Printer, CNC Machine And Laser Etcher Makes A Lot Of Sense

3-D printers are powerful but limited tools: you can make anything you want, but only out of a specific kind of plastic.

They're often too thick to accommodate batteries and motors, and too heavy to push if the battery dies. Can't we do better?

A Single Cable With Swappable Connectors Wants To Replace All Your Wires

Traveling for work usually involves bringing along a small mountain of electronics, each with cables that need to tag along too.
